Dance festival hosted
The Dance Valley Festival is the latest in a string of summer events being hosted at Whangamata's Joe's Farm. It is taking place on Saturday, January 8 and will feature several of New Zealand's favourite artists. Event organiser Denis Beaver from Coro-events says, “After the past few months of uncertainty we are looking forward to a healthy summer of music and outdoor fun. “Being able to host a festival that provides a safe place for 15-18-year-olds to hang out with their friends and enjoy themselves alongside other festival goers is what we think will make Dance Valley standout as a must attend event this festival season. “The Government announcement around vaccine passports for large scale events has provided some muchneeded certainty for event organisers.” Both the R15 youth ticket and the GA tickets are expected to go on sale from October 28. All tickets include free shuttle transport to and from Whangamata. Pre-register at www. dancevalley.co.nz.
